We would all like to live in a pleasant environment that met all our needs, but some people are prepared to go much further than others to get the home that they want. We’re not talking applying a new lick of paint in the kitchen or putting a draft-excluder by the front door. No – we’re interested in the people who made massive sweeping changes to their properties to achieve the lifestyle that they want. I mean, how far would YOU go to upgrade YOUR Home?

Take a quick look around the internet, and you can find examples of people who have done wild things to upgrade their accommodation. For instance, take the current trend towards indoor-outdoor swimming pools. A growing community of people wants pool options that allow them to move from the open to undercover in the space of a length.
Then there are people with hobbies and interests. Those who love keeping horses (and foals) might invest in a paddock, menage, and stables. People who enjoy looking at the night sky could install an observatory on their roof. And those who have a passion for reading might build a grand library.
When it comes to modifying your home, the world really is your oyster. Usually, the only limitation is your budget – and whether it makes more sense to move to more extensive accommodation.
For many people with family commitments and a mortgage, staying put is the only option. That doesn’t mean, though, that you can’t make substantial improvements to your property. A home theater company, for instance, can transform a spare room into something that resembles a professional cinema. Kitchen and bathroom designers can also make massive upgrades that make both cooking and washing better experiences. You could even add an entirely new wing to your home to accommodate guests when they come to space, so long as you have the land.
If you’re on a budget, take a look at these ideas for transforming your home.
Install A Stylish Stair Rail
If you look at the most lavish properties in the world, you immediately notice that they all invest considerably in their stair rail. There’s something about a quality rail that helps to bring a home together in just the right way.
Tile Around The Fireplace
Expensive homes always make the fireplace the centerpiece of the room, but in smaller properties, it is often an afterthought.
Don’t be like everyone else: where possible, try to embellish your fireplace. Adorn it by surrounding it with beautiful tiles that complement the appearance of the rest of your room. Furthermore, don’t be afraid to go big with your designs. If you have a bare wall, cover the entire area with something that has visual appeal.
Add Crown Molding To The Ceilings
In the past, crown molding was a costly adornment, reserved for the aristocracy. Today, though, you can get machine-created variants that are a fraction of the cost of the original, and massively upgrade your interior space.
Repaint Your Front Door
Finally, give your entire property a facelift by repainting your front door. You’ll be amazed at the difference it makes from the road.
